I have been busy with this project since last August, giving lots of auditions and working for several months on the creation and rehearsals.
I feel really blessed to have given my dance in the hands of luminary choreographers such as Show Director Brian Burke, Ray Leeper and even Shiamak Davar...
They made me the main character, the thread of the storyline of INDIA, the show.
I am The Queen walking through her Palace as she guides her guests through the universe of INDIA.
I am the story teller with a pantomime of sparkling jeweled eyes, parading, elegantly dressed in a wide serie of flamboyant costumes of rich tones.
I am unpredictable, carrying the sword of Fire, as i turn INDIA into a Circus of fairies.
Always around, i accompany the acrobats as they make their entrances and exits to the land of mystery and wonders.
I exude the most feminine sensuality as i glide across the stage leading groups of nymphs for enchanted dancing.
Graceful, fragile and inaccessible, my exuberance is infectious, as i stand for fantasy and desire, i will whirl for madness and suddenly disappear in a cloud of stardusts...
The show premiered in Frankfurt, Germany on December 17th and performed 62 times until February 7th, 2010. The show is currently on a winter break.
